Opus-Style Thinking from a Maine Government Official

The Press Herald ran an op-ed earlier this week by Judge Dana Hanley of the Probate Court who also spent ten years in the Maine House and Senate. Judge Hanley dishes out some Opus-style wisdom supported by a case study. Three cheers for the Probate Court!
